Monaco Takes Part in the UniDEM-Med Seminar
In his new role as a member of the European Commission for Democracy through Law, more commonly known as the Venice Commission, Mr. Laurent Anselmi, Chief Legal Advisor to the Government and State Councillor, recently took part in a seminar in Rabat, Morocco, on the subject of the reform of the civil service in countries of the Mediterranean Basin.
This event was organised by UniDem-Med (Universities for Democracy for the Southern Mediterranean), under the aegis of the Venice Commission and the Ministry of Civil Service and the Modernization of Administration of the Kingdom of Morocco.
The main aim of the UniDem-Med Project Campus is to contribute to an administration that is ever more effective, to good governance and the consolidation of institutions, respecting the law in general and human rights in particular. The UniDem-Med seminars offer legal capacity development sessions for civil service senior executives, with a view to exchanging experience and strengthening links between administrations.
On the first day of the seminar, Mr. Anselmi gave a speech on the values of the civil service, in the light of Monaco's experience. On this occasion, the focus was on traditional principles, which are still relevant today – continuity, the adaptability of the service and equality between users – enriched with the new principles of integrity, transparency, efficiency and cost-effectiveness.
